Alison and Keith are wonderful people. Any query or question they are straight onto it. They have great knowledge of the area. We have been coming back here for the past four years and wouldn't think of going any where else. The apartments are always lovely and clean and when you contact them direct you get a really good price... More

Keith and Alison couldn't have been more helpful or nicer. The apartment was spacious and well appointed, the complex was terrific and the area gorgeous. We were in a 2 bedroom apartment and we thought the kitchen and the living area were fantastic. We will be back!They had a supply of boogie boards and beach chairs to borrow and they... More

Stayed in feb 2014 booked via rainbow bay realty (cheaper I believe) Unit 13 has no ceiling fans and the main bathroom is tiny. Onsite managers very friendly and not at all annoying (unlike our stay at rainbow place). Pool well maintained and great for families. I believe units are individually owned. Will stay again :-)

We have stayed at The Bay Apartments over many years. Sometimes with family and friends and recently as a couple. It is close to everything, a block back from the noise of the beachfront and tranquil. The apartments are well presented and they offer excellent value for money. The current managers are a delight. We cannot speak more highly of... More

I booked into the Bay Apartments in a group of 4. We were backpacking Australia and were looking for a place to stay along the Gold Coast. We booked in for a week but wished it could have been more! The pricing is excellent, especially in relation to Hostel pricing in Brisbane, Melbourne and Perth (our other destinations). It worked... More

As a family travelling with a 5 and 7 year old we would highly recommend The Bay Apartments. The 2 bedroom apartment (room 11) has everything you need. Kids loved the spa and would have loved the pool in warmer weather. The grounds, pool and bbq area are very neat and tidy. Short walking distance to Supermarkets, Beaches, Playgrounds, Restaurants.... More
